    Some of the best coffee and my favorite espresso (each is between a double & triple) in the very competitive EV coffee market. I alway get a "shot and a drip to go".

    They just moved across the road. The space is huge, but the coffee is as delicious and comforting as before.

    BEST coffee in New York. Had a cortado, which was so heavenly thick and perfectly balanced. Plus the honey cornbread is epic with the absolute amount of saltness and sweetness.

    To drink, get their cortado, rose almond coffee or kaffe mit schlag (Viennese coffee with whipped cream). To eat, get the brioche cinnamon bun, olive oil cookies or the lemon cornmeal cake.

    Perfect cortado. Great quick lunch -trios of small plates. Plush ricotta fritters and shortbread flavored with cured olive oil are the most distinctive of the creative house-baked goods.

    Absolutely love the coffee here, as well as their cured olive oil biscuit. Food sells out quickly so come here before the afternoon slump crowd. A number of tables for people to sit and chat.

    Neighborhood spot that never disappoints. Cold brew and cortado are great. Try the olive oil cake or frittata too.

    They serve their Cortado in a Gibraltar glass. Definitely the drink of choice - have it to stay with a slice of olive oil cake.

    The best and I mean the best coffee spot you will find in NYC. I've been to many coffee places in the city and none compare. Try it you'll be addicted☕️☕️☕️

    Remember the awesome Toddy Cold Brew system? It’s making delicious brews at this East Village coffee haven, too. Read more

    cash only- but there's a bodega on 7th & 1st with an ATM that only charges $1.75. Abraco is where you want to come and enjoy the scene, grab a cortado and stand outside sipping

    It took ten minutes to get my espresso. I think this place is more about seeing and being seen and standing on sidewalks than about coffee. The olive oil cake was freaking amazing.

    One of my favorite stops. A hole-in-the-wall espresso joint that serves killer espresso drinks & delicious olive oil cake. Not open late, and nowhere to sit, but its everything you want in coffee.

    This tiny Portuguese espresso bar brews up a benny ($3.25)—a hybrid coffee drink similar to a cortado that's served in a tiny mug. The coffee is killer. Read more

    Best espresso in nyc. Place is tiny so no seats and usually a short line, especially on weekends. Olive oil coffee cake is totally money too.

    Super yummy and light egg sandwich. Their olive oil cake was also light and delicious.

    The best macchiato I've ever had. Jamie makes incredible coffee. Hang out and enjoy your espresso inside with an egg on brioche. Cash only.

    Carrot cake was delicious. Good price point of 3.50. Americano is on the smaller side which provides for better flavour. Great joint

    Excellent coffee. Fast friendly service. I've been here countless times over the years (both this and their old location) and they never disappoint.

    This place is all about coffee indulgence. For example, they don't have skim milk and the word "abraço" is Portuguese for hug. So, get a rich cup of anything and share it with someone huggable.

    Expertly pulled espresso and the best olive oil cake in the city. Don't expect to sit and linger, though; there's almost no counter space.

    Quite simply the best cup of coffee in New York. Get the drip coffe, but take note - this Counter Culture blend packs punch, so try some olive oil cake if you've got an empty stomach.

    Coffee 6.2: This small no table hole in the wall espresso bar in the East Village serves the best coffee in Manhattan. Their olive oil cake is pretty good too.

    Don't leave without something to eat—everything is freshly baked in-house. If it's your first time here get the olive oil cake.

    Lots of local charm to this place. Not much room to linger, most customers wait outside when it's busy. Definitely worth a stop if you're nearby.

    Lattes and cured olive oil cookies are heavenly. Even their cortado and buckwheat cake are amazing.

    Best way to know what the weather is in NYC - go to Abraco, get a coffee/latte/cortado. If Coltrane is playing, it's rainy outside.

    Small space, great coffee. Not the place to meet a friend or do work. However it is the place to get a perfectly dialed in espresso.

    Tiny European-style espresso bar with room to take your drink outside. Few baristas, so a high average quality. Aims for more Italian style, richer espresso rather than third-wave brighter shots.

    Tiny and literally a coffee bar, Jamie (proprietor & head barista) cranks out fantastic espresso & coffee drinks. For a snack, must get the cured olive cookie.

    Other places will claim to have the best coffee in the city but don't be fooled- this is the best coffee in the city.

    Cortado and olive oil cake are both out of this world! I may travel across the city every day just to get my fix!

    This SRO espresso shop serves the creamiest cappuccino in the city. Be sure to get the olive shortbread if they've made it. Closed on Mondays.

    Moist and prone to minor crumbling, the olive oil cake ($3) harbors a simple and unassertive flavor, like a more flavorful angel cake Read more
